Dusting off some history

Posted in News, Site News

I've just dusted off about 30 mini dv and video tapes to begin capturing all the footage we filmed from the late 1990's to the mid 2000's. This includes the remarks session with Hardy, Rawlins and Toby. Daves Place, EHR, Comps, Shippies, Hawaii and so on.

If anyone out there has an old Video8 camera they wouldn't mind us borrowing for a week or two please contact us. Your generosity will not go unrewarded.

Here's a crappy little clip I put together at the end of last Summer. I think it was the last surf I had because I had my ear drilled. Filmed with the GoPro HD in some fun 1 footers at Rebounds.

I've just upgraded the the GoPro Hero2 camera and given the all clear from the doctor to get back in the water so hopefully I can get out in some waves a tad bigger than this over the next few weeks!

If you've got some GoPro clips up on the net leave a link in the comments below or send us a link and we'll throw it up on the site.

A heads up for the North Coast lads if you plan on jumping in the water around Rocky Cape over the Christmas period. A humpback whale carcass which was towed out to sea has washed up again. The local seal colony has bailed because of the large number of great whites coming in for a free feed.

21 Years of foam

Posted in News, Local News

This is what 21 years of boards look like. It's a collection of mostly boards I have ridden and a few acquired from Cashies, my brothers and one belongs to John Bennett.

I'll take some better quality photos over the next few weeks. So if there is a board in the quiver that you'd like to see or know more about just let me know.
